Brown Bag AllStars - J57 "Digital Society" Instrumental EP

From Brown Bag AllStars:

J57 "Digital Society" Instrumental EP

Balanced Records (Groove & Fat Beats Distribution)

"Long Island/Brooklyn native, J57 illustrates warm synth melodies washing through tight beats and subtle textures on Digital Society, an anthemic electronic hip-hop soundtrack. Infusing his production with hip-hop, soul, glitch, and countless other influences, J57 has a masterful ear and an unerring drive to his beats. Using precision and clarity for this freshman solo album, J57 draws contributions from Digga Jefferson Price on keys and vocals, Jordan Usatch on guitar and lyrical shading by Soul Khan of Brown Bag AllStars fame. Additionally, Deejay Element and Juno Award winner DJ Brace stamp their respective marks with nimble fingers."



DJ Brace feat. Brown Bag AllStars "Everyday" 7" B/W "Everyday (Ancient Astronauts Remix)"
Nostomania Records (Fat Beats Distribution)

"Everyday, featuring the Brown Bag AllStars, is the first release on Canadian DMC Champion and Juno Award winning DJ Braces new label, Nostomania Recordings. B-side features a dubbed-out remix by ESL artists, The Ancient Astronauts. Every one of the artists featured on this 45 are on the grind everyday making music, doing shows, and trying to live as musicians. In the song Everyday MCs J57, Koncept & Soul Khan tell the story of that grind."

It's been 15 Years since the Hip Hop world felt the impact of Tony Touch's Tape 50. A real mixtape showcasing top notch MC's from Onyx to Wu-Tang Clan to Kool G Rap to Busta Rhymes to KRS One. The list goes on...and on and on.

2010 is the year that same essence will be revisited and honored. With a bit of a twist.

To provide a proper ode to Tony Touch and his classic monumental projects, New World Chaos (MyGrane McNastee & AmIAm of Vets of Kin) reached out to 50 MC's from their city. We proudly present to you "Ozone 50 MC's".

Ozone (Orlando, FL) is known as a gold mine scene for Hip Hop. A location called home for some of the world's most talented artists. The first installment provides a collective of MCs that you may know from The Wake Up show with Sway & Tech, Grind Time Now, nationwide tours and others that are just on their grind. Such as Swamburger, Murdoc, MyGrane McNastee, AmIAm, Madd Illz, Rugged, TzariZM, MidaZ, Kap Kallous, JBiz, Redd Simpkins, Shinobi Stalin, Jonny Storm, X:144, Illustrate, Unique Assassin, Vis Major, Critical Madness and many more.

Introducing....."Quality Control", a crew that consists of Sharp (of Thump Connection/ Hazardous Soundz Ent.) & cRITICAL (of Critical Madness/Creative Juices/ Hidden Agenda) along with a slew of other founding members that include emceez, djs, producers & graff artists. Their 2 hometown crews originally united in the late 90's in Central Florida after several years of building in cypherz, crashing open mics & rockin' at the same house parties. In other words, the roots are thick and the bond formed naturally which is evident from the organic chemistry demonstrated on their latest project titled "Toxic Therapy". This Radioactive masterpiece stays true to their unique formula that will have tape headz blowin' the dust off of their cassette crates to inject another dose of that analog vaccine that hip hop scientist fiend for! Their 1st experiment "2010 Policy" is fresh out the lab so circulate that & spread the germ! To be continued!

The Only BS You Can Trust

Don’t let the name fool you, there’s nothing BS about BS. A part of NYC’s next generation of up and coming emcees, BS has rocked the mic with a litany of former Artists Of The Week (aka B-Listers, for the uninitiated), including Chaz Kangas, Jesse Abraham, and Premonition. In fact, the first time I saw him perform it was with a group of artists I’d known for a while, so it was almost as though he’d arrived on the scene already co-signed. To BS’s credit, he’s never taken advantage of that feeling and continues to work his ass off to get heard. This week I caught up with BS to find out more about the man behind the initials, including what those initials stand for, where you’ll never find him, and why instead of sneaking into shows he now has to sneak out of them.
